My husband has been hurting really bad in his abdominal. They thought it might have been his gallbladder so they removed it. The pain is still there, now the doctor says it might be IBS, he is taking dicyclomine medicine and its not helping. Any suggestions on what could be the problem. They checked his pancreas, liver and all is good.
Has he been checked for C-Diff?
I had c-diff and it felt like someone had kicked me.I was in the hospital a week before they found what the problem was. They even gave me morphine. I could hardly walk. Try some good yogart. Something with probiotics in it.. Acidophilus Milk is a wonderful choice.
This has to be treated !! He must be in so much pain to have surgery and it did not even work.
"Antibiotic-associated (C. difficile) colitis is an infection of the colon caused by C. difficile that occurs primarily among individuals who have been using antibiotics. It is the most common infection acquired by patients while they are in the hospital. More than three million C. difficile infections occur in hospitals in the US each year. After a stay of only two days in a hospital, 10% of patients will develop infection with C. difficile. C. difficile also may be acquired outside of hospitals in the community. It is estimated that 20,000 infections with C. difficile occur in the community each year in the U.S.
I hope this is the answer.
It's most likely IBS. I would personally have your husband talk to his doctor about taking Nexium (The Purple Pill) It takes care of the following problems:
-Duodenal Ulcer due to H. Pylori
-Maintenance of Healing Erosive Esophagitis
-Pathological Gastric Hypersecretory Condition
-Prevention of NSAID-Induced Gastric Ulcer
If that doesn't work after taking it for a few months I would talk to your doctor about seeing a Specialist. Hope this helps and good luck
